on that looming fiscal cliff on january 1st. >> reporter: that's right, george. he used that press conference to lay out very bright lines on where he stands on taxes and the fiscal cliff. holding his first news conference since winning re-election, the president took a hard line on his bottom line. there will be no budget deal without raising taxes on the wealthy. >> when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it, which would cost close to $1 trillion. >> reporter: in his previous efforts to strike a so-called grand bargain with speaker of the house john boehner, the president proposed $800 billion in new tax revenues. but now, he is seeking twice that. $1.6 trillion in new taxes over the next ten years. that's a bitter pill for republicans to swallow. speaker boehner has called raising tax rates on anybody unacceptable. but he hasn't ruled out limiting deductions and closing loopholes. and that could be the outline of a possible deal. >> look at what the president had to say. look closer at what i had to say. there's no barri

that anybody breached the national security in the scandal that's erupted around two top u.s. generals. but the president notes the investigation is still going on. president obama held his first white house news conference of his new term today. reporters asked him whether investigators should have informed the white house about the scandal before the election. >> what i will say is, is that if, um, it is also possible that had we been told, then you would be sitting here asking a question about why were you interfering in a criminal investigation. >> shepard: the president said he thinks it's best if we just wait to get more information about how all of this unfolded. no question it is complicated so here is a bit of a recap of all the cast members and plot twists in this ongoing well soap opera. last week then cia director david petraeus resigned as we learned that he had been sleeping with his biographer paula broadwell. that affair came out after the fbi started investigating paula broadwell for allegedly sending emails to another woman jill kellily a friend of david petraeus fami

." cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly joins us now with more on the story. this is a request that perhaps may not have come to many as a surprise, suzanne. the microscope is blazing, and my assumption is, and i don't know what your sources are saying, they just don't want to screw anything up in this investigation. >> yeah, well, not only that, but you know, the broadening the culture, ashlie, as you mentioned with this memo is looking to see just how far something like this might spread. we certainly never expected to hear general allen's name pulled into anything and you know, he put out in his defense put out a statement yesterday that sounded very confident that once he feels like people review the pentagon inspector general ends up reviewing the e-mails, they'll find there's nothing egregrious there. that may end up being the case. you're seeing a defense secretary now sort of cast a wide net and send aid very clear message that if this kind of thing is going on among other flag officers, senior officers, that it needs to be fixed immediately. >> so i think, suzanne, one
he used to work with swiss bank. he gave an interview quote, i would say that during the campaign season there is always a lot of rhetoric back and forth. the campaign is over. the country has spoken, and the president has won. wall street and the president align on many things. in other words, of course to get your vote we told you we're not going to cut entitlements and now that the election is over, believe me, the president and wall street align. what about capital gains. that might go back up. that would be a good thing. don't get excited. if they do nothing it goes back up to 39.6% than former income tax for the top bracket. no. the private sector probably has an awareness that the capital gains rate will likely go back to somewhere around the low 20, maybe 20%, maybe 22% in that range i don't think a lot of people have a significant problem being in the low 20s. really they don't? are you not merciful. of course you would have a problem with that. that's an incredibly low rate. that's the compromise we're going to get? disaster. now what about social security. remember when
right now. hi i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the presidential press conference, that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. mostly a waste of time. as mr. obama did what he always does, provided long-winded answers to general questions. the first question from the white house press corps should have been very simple. exactly when were you told about general petraeus, mr. president? and why was this kept secret until after the election? simple. that's the kind of question s no wiggle room. instead, an associated press guy asked an opinion question rather than a fact question. allowing the president to dance. >> do you think that you, as commander and chief, and the american people should have been told that the cia chief was under investigation before the election? >> obviously, there is an ongoing investigation. i don't want to comment on the specifics of the investigation. the fbi has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. and, you know, i'm going to let director muller and others examine those protocols and make some statements to the p
on the u.s. consulate itself. this caused major damage, but there was no significant security response and this is seen by the u.s. intelligence community as a testing or probing incident before the 9/11 at act itself. secondly how quickly did the u.s. intelligence community conclude what happened in benghazi was in an act of terrorism linked to al qaeda and a second group ansar al-sharia? how does that time frame match up with the administration's statements that it was in fact a demonstration that was spontaneous in response to the anti-islam video? and third, why was it that the state department denied repeated requests from ambassador stevens in benghazi along with his staff for additional security specifically, a classified briefing in august that determined the consulate could not withstand a coordinated attack from groups like al qaeda and as well as ansar al-sharia? for some context the people who are testifying today this is the top of the u.s. intelligence community as well as the law enforcement community. we have the director of national intelligence, the acting cia directo

to help us." that's my mandate. i don't presume that because i won an election, that everybody suddenly agrees with me on any... everything. >> reporter: and the president directly challenged republicans to drop the tax breaks for the better-off. >> a modest tax increase on the wealthy is not going to break their backs. they'll still be wealthy, and it will not impinge on business investment. but what i will not do is to have a process that is vague, that says we're going to sort of, kind of raise revenue through dynamic scoring or closing loopholes that have not been identified. and the reason i won't do that is because i don't want to find ourselves in a position six months from now or a year from now where, lo and behold, the only way to close the deficit is to sock it to middle-class families >> reporter: still, mr. oba stopped short of saying flatly that it's a deal breaker if republicans insist on keeping tax rates for the rich where they are now. >> i'm less concerned about red lines, per se. what i'm concerned about is not finding ourselves in a situation where the wealthy aren'
house correspondent chuck todd. thanks for joining us tonight. this was a hot pressure cooker press conference and you were in the middle. let's talk about the president's tactic. it looks like he's got one. here he is sticking out his message of defending the middle class today, sticking to it. he practically dared the republicans to hold tax cuts for the middle class hostage. he went back to that word hostage. let's take a look. >> the other option is to pass a law right now that would prevent any tax hike whatsoever on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. i hope republicans in the house come on board, too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. the most important step we can take right now, i think the foundation for a deal that helps the economy, creates jobs, gives consumersty, which means gives consumers confidence they'll have consumers during the holiday season if we right away say 98% of americans aren't going to see their taxes go up. >> i thought that was pretty well crafted as a tactic. i don't know if it's a strategy.
